Blog Tour & Review: Unpredictable by C.A. Harms

Author: C.A. Harms
Series: The Key West #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Have you ever wished for a moment that you could pretend to live the life of someone else? Escape the harsh reality that your own is anything but perfect?

Quinn had always been forced to put her own needs last. With an absent father and a mother who drowns herself daily in a bottle of Rum, there was no other option.

Jett was the distraction she needed, even if it was just for one night. A void filler, a chance for a freeing moment to allow herself to feel something other than emptiness.

He wasn’t what she expected…


Her life didn’t have room for a man like Jett.


But now it was too late, there was no turning back.


Nothing would ever be the same.

It’d been two days. Two days of unanswered calls, unanswered texts. Two days of driving by her house day and night, only to find it empty. I spoke with her boss at Spencer’s, and he too said she had taken some time off. 

With each day my heart sank a little more with the thought that I had thrown away the best thing that had ever happened to me. This was on me, completely. I acted like the biggest dick when I should have just talked to her. 

“Hey, numb nuts, you still pouting?” Kade shouted as he exited the French doors onto the back patio. 

“I need to change my locks,” I grumbled. Resting my head back against the chair, I closed my eyes, attempting to block him out. 

“Don’t blame me for your massive amount of shit. I’m just here for the pool—oh, and the free beer.” He chuckled as he pulled his shirt up and over his head, then took off and jumped, cannonballing into the pool. 

“Whew,” he yelled out just before hitting the water. The cool splash flowed backward, drenching the entire patio. All I could do was shake my head at the ass. He was doing everything possible to pull me from my slump. I picked up my phone and checked once again for any response only to come up empty. 

“Give the girl some time. I know it’s driving you crazy, not being able to fix this, but you need to try to give her some space.” 

Kade climbed out of the pool, shaking his hair, once again spraying water in every direction. Cocky son of a bitch chuckled as I jumped from my chair and stepped back.

This is the first book from C.A. Harms I have read and to be completely honest I don’t know if she has me sold as a fan.  I enjoyed the book but I didn’t fall in love with the characters. I enjoyed their story but at times caught myself just skimming. There is insta-love in this book and I’m not a huge fan of that so that is probably where my issue is.  It was steamy and had a good storyline and again thought the book was good.  I thought overall it was a good 3 star read.

Jett is the owner of a successful restaurant in Miami and doesn’t have time for relationships.  He doesn’t do them.  He has his mind set on business with an occasional night out for fun.  Having a girlfriend is the last thing on his mind.

Now Quinn… my heart really does bleed for her and I did have a soft spot for her.  She works to support her drunken mother and has never met or known who her Father is.  With her Mother, it’s like she’s the parent and has to be the responsible one. She’s worried about paying the bills and making sure the mortgage is paid. 

A chance night out Jett and Quinn met.  They have that instant chemistry and their relationship goes to zero to hundred overnight.  They have a one night stand and that appears to be the end of their story., until Quinn applies for a job at a restaurant.  Just happens to be owned by Jett…  They both admit they cannot get their night out of their heads and decide to give a relationship a go. 

When things looks to be going good, someone from Quinn’s past makes an appearance and causes her home life to be turned upside down. Secrets are exposed from her past that she was unaware of and leave her devastated and questioning everything.  Is a relationship too much to take right now or will Jett be able to be there to be the shoulder to lean on in her time of need?  He has his own responsibilities as well and will being a young entrepreneur. Will he have the time needed to be there when Quinn needs him most?  You will need to read to find out… 

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
